MicroVent Technology

Atrenne developed MicroVent® technology to enable highly optimized data center and telecommunications chassis front panels, rear panels and fan guards to provide more efficient airflow while meeting EMI/RFI requirements, at a reduced cost.  MicroVent technology is an advanced approach to venting that includes hexagonal features with 80%+ open area and material thickness of 2mm to 5mm. 

Increased MTBF

Using a proprietary manufacturing process, Atrenne can replace honeycomb panel installations with a single panel with up to 87% air flow.  This simplifies fan design which translates to increased system reliability.  A cooler running system also improves MTBF which translates to a lower lifecycle cost. 

Improved EMI/RFI Filtering

The unique nature of MicroVent technology aluminum offers excellent EMI/RFI screening at frequencies required by leading edge data center servers and telecommunications equipment. 

Lower Cost

MicroVent technology offers improved airflow with excellent EMI/RFI filtering performance, in many cases allowing one component to replace two.  Increased airflow can facilitate a simpler thermal management solution, reducing project design cost and technical risk.  A cooler running system increases component life and improves system reliability, resulting in an overall reduced life cycle cost.
